Wahoo! My new camera is finally here!

I finally got all the parts to my new camera last week, and let me tell ya’, I feel like I won big on a scratch-off lottery ticket. I am so excited to finally have my first SLR camera. I’ve secretly dreamed of having one since I was in high school, but let’s not discuss how long ago that was or that dinosaurs probably still roamed the earth. I chose the Canon EOS Rebel T2i 550D with the EFS (IS) 18-55mm lens kit after The Complete Package (a world-class super geek) performed his usual high-level exhaustive research of the latest digital SLRs. Thanks, honey! This camera is awesome – lightweight, easy to understand and highly rated. The second most important part of my purchase was the “For Dummies” book that matches the camera, which was my main source of entertainment this weekend. I still have hundreds of pages to go, but I’ll get it eventually. I did, however, learn enough to snap a few shots of The Zigmeister and download them so I could take it for a test drive. The difference between the new digital SLR and my old point-and-shoot digital pocket camera is amazing. I have a lot to learn, and when I do I’ll share more about what this puppy can do. Until then, I’ll leave you with this simple photo comparison. Thanks for playing along, Ziggy. Oh man, I’m going to love this thing!

  2. Ziggy photos crack me up! He’s so darn cute.

    • He’s getting cranky in his old age. Every time I break out the new camera, he turns around. If I walk around him to see his face, he turns around again. I’m guessing he’s either not fond of the new camera or he doesn’t like the extra attention. He’s always giving me the business end now. I’m determined to wear him down until he gives up and poses for me. My only other choice is to start posting photos of his derriere. Ick.
